  • 6 medium Salmon fillets skinless and boneless
  • Coriander to garnish

For the glaze:

  • 2 tablespoons tamarind paste
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice optional – leave it out if you prefer less tartness
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon chilli flakes
  • 1 teaspoon Olive oil or any Vegetable oil of your preference
  • Salt to season


  • Clean the salmon fillets and pat them with a kitchen towel to dry. Keep aside.
  • While you are prepping the ingredients for the glaze, preheat a grill-pan on the stovetop.
  • In a bowl, combine all the ingredients mentioned under ‘glaze.’
  • Brush some of the glaze onto both side of the salmon fillets. Use no more than 1/3 of the glaze.
  • Transfer the fillets to the heated grill-pan and grill on one side for 3 minutes, until browned, then flip it over gently and grill the other side for 2 minutes.
  • As the fish is grilling, in a small saucepan, warm up the rest of the glaze on medium heat. Let it heat for 3-4 minutes. Take it off the heat and let it cool.
  • To serve, spoon the glaze over the salmon fillets and serve over rice or rice noodles.
